Guess who’s screenprinting awesome patches this week? They still need a finishing touch but I’m rewarding my volunteer workers with more patches, so they should be finished in no time (even with the extra batch I’m printing this Friday). Soon, on a backpack near you!


(let me know if you want some!)

zorgen van nu // actual worries
screenprinted illustration from my millennial themed graduate project, combining ikea furniture that I own with worries that I have to own up to.
translations :
1. why does the existential crisis always come at 3 AM in the morning?2. my bookcase is too pretentious for this conversation.3. but what if I don’t want to be a caring personality?4. this isn’t ambition, this is an inability to sit still

1. why does the existential crisis always come at 3 AM in the morning?

screenprinted vinyl clock. 

concept : ‘the best laid plans of mice and men…’ feels like a good metaphor for twenty-somethings trying to maintain the illusion of a well-ordered life. Instead of a multiple choice option for my income level, I’d like a check off at the start of the day :

functional,dysfunctional, 50/50, other…

because there’s always a crisis somewhere, and a cup of tea waiting, and socks drying next to newspapers. because no one actually knows what they’re doing.

1. i am now 22 (and surprisingly okay with this).
2. current projects : all very big, mostly to do with either film or postmodernism (or both).

4. to be expected : more progress shots, more illustrations, more signs of life.
